Well, I'm down to the wire here. I put the quilt on the frame Friday afternoon and started quilting it. I got it finished Saturday night after the grandbaby left. I finished quilting it around 11:00 and took it off the frame...I cut the binding today and sewed it on. Now, I'm hand stitching the binding to the back. I've already made the label and hopefully, I'll get this one done by tonight or tomorrow afternoon. Her birthday is tomorrow! Talk about cutting it close! I went ahead and cut the borders for the 2nd quilt that will be just like this one and I cut some of the binding strips. I found out I didn't have enough fabric so will be making another trip to the shop for more. Since I did this, I do not have enough now for a pillowcase like I wanted, but that's ok. When I get more fabric, I'll make one then and give it to her late. I've enjoyed making this one, even with the deadline. I quilted this with loops and hearts. Some of my hearts look like leaves instead of hearts but hopefully, my eight year old granddaughter will still think they are hearts! I'm linking up with Kathy of Kathy's Quilts for Slow Stitch Sunday and I'm going to turn the TV on and watch some of the show's I've recorded and enjoy stitching. I hope you have a restful Sunday afternoon too. Happy Stitchining!
